Southampton face arguably their biggest test of the season so far as they welcome Premier League champions Manchester City to St. Mary’s this afternoon.
Ronald Koeman’s side are the surprise package of the campaign have enjoyed a successful run of form that sees them sitting pretty in second of the league, and they’ll be hoping to cut Chelsea’s seven point lead at the top to four points with a win against City.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side will be in buoyant mood after their fantastic 3-2 victory over Bayern Munich in the Champions League earlier this week and will now have their sights firmly set on closing the gap on Chelsea in order to give themselves a real chance of successfully defending their Premier League crown.
Here are the confirmed starting line-ups for both sides…
